Do you notice the world around you and think about how you could you change it for the better?  Do you enjoy designing solutions to real-world problems? A career as an architect, landscape architect, urban designer or planner could be the right fit for you!

A Bachelor of Environmental Design is the perfect first step. You’ll be able to specialise in architecture, landscape architecture or environmental geography and planning, and go on to qualify for entry to your chosen profession.
